How does $1 for a big scoop of ice cream between two cookies sound?

CREAM Fresno, the ice cream sandwich shop at Barstow and Cedar avenues, is offering this deal Saturday. CREAM, short for “cookies rule everything around me,” first opened in 2014.

It recently got a new franchise owner, Mohammad Arman, who used to be the general manager. To celebrate, the shop is hosting a grand reopening and selling $1 ice cream sandwiches from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 27. The shop is at 1760 E. Barstow Ave., in the same center as The Bulldog Shop near Fresno State.

DJ Kay Rich will be playing music and there will be raffles and giveaways of T-shirts, pens and other prizes.

CREAM Fresno lets customers pick two cookies (which are sometimes still warm from the oven) from at least nine flavors like double chocolate chip and snickerdoodle. You can mix and match cookie flavors.

Customers also pick the scoop of ice cream that goes between them. There are 18 options on the menu, including chocolate chip cookie dough and green tea ice cream.

CREAM also sells vegan and gluten-free ice cream and cookies.

Typically, customers can add toppings on the edges of the sandwiches, like gummy bears or M&Ms, but toppings are not included in the $1 special.

The shop’s regular menu also includes ice cream cones, sundaes, ice cream tacos made with a taco-shaped waffle cone, and ice cream sandwiches made with brownies.
